After “Untouchables” and “The Meaning of the Party”, Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache are still in the spotlight with Vincent Cassel and Reda Kateb in “Hors standards”.
The new film by Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache starring Vincent Cassel and Reda Kateb at the head of two youth reintegration associations in the suburbs to train them on a difficult mission: mentoring children and adolescents with autism. Out of the ordinary arrives on the screens Wednesday 23 October and could well move the lines of the care of autistic in France.
Bruno (Vincent Cassel) and Malik (Reda Kateb) are dedicated to caring for severe autism in their respective associations, making them the best friends in the world. However, they operate in structures that are not approved by health administrations. Until the day that Bruno's is the subject of an investigation that could call into question.
Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache refer explicitly to two associations in Ile-de-France, whose leaders are their longtime friends, Stéphane Benhamou, founder of the association Silence for the righteous, and Daoud Tatou, creator of the Relais Ile -of France. Both help families with autistic who can not manage their children to the most complex pathologies.
The directors go from laughter to tears in Out of the ordinary, where Vincent Cassel and Reda Kateb are surrounded by autistic and unprofessional actors who do not demerit in their performances. At their side, the very talented Hélène Vincent and Catherine Mouchet complete a five-star cast. The first quality of the film is to target a “France who is 40 years late“In the management of autistic, said Daoud Tatou.No institution does not take the risk of taking care of these serious pathological cases, even dangerous for their entourage and therapists.A gap in the French health system that points moreover the goodwill of deserving and fragile associations.
Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache dotted their film with a host of truthful anecdotes that feed a story constantly revived. By multiplying the setbacks of their characters, they take the party of a chronicle, more than that of a simple story. They give a dynamic to a scenario that could have run short by following only one particular case. Far from being limited to a string of good feelings, Out of the ordinary could change the way we look at autism and its treatment in France. This is the best wish that can be formulated to this beautiful and deserving film.
